Book Review: “Clockwork Princess” by Cassandra Clare

Hello everybody!

I borrowed this book for my public library. I listened to the audiobook.

Overview from GoodReads:

If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it? The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose. Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment. Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy.

 

I so did not expect that to happen. That ending…! My fangirl heart!

Hey guys!

APRIL 15TH-21ST

One of the projects I had due this week got pushed back to next week, but I still had a lot of homework to do. I had to take back all my the library books because I didn’t know that they were due until I had gotten the email. I did not finish any books this week, unfortunately, but oh well. It’s crunch-time for school.

TODAY

I worked this morning until late afternoon and then I had homework to do (that I still have to do). I am currently taking a break from my homework and will be going right back into it when I am done writing this post. I am currently finishing up the “Clockwork Princess” audiobook – I have less than 50 pages left. I plan on starting the audiobook for “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs tonight.

CURRENTLY READING

  • Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings – page 12 out of 534.
  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – page 96 out of 172

  • The City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers – page 69 out of 478. This is on my Nook, so the pages are wacky. I am 14% done this book.
  • Darker by E.L. James – page 53 out of 393. This is on my Nook, so the pages are wacky. I am 12% done this book.

APRIL 22ND-28TH

I have 6 major projects due in the next 2 weeks, so I definitely will be focusing on homework. This week, I plan on finishing “Clockwork Princess” and getting, at least, half-way through “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs. I also plan on finishing “Enslave” by Cathy Yardley and “The Great Gatsby”. I am hoping to start “Nobody Walks” by Dennis M. Walsh.

Until my next post,

Hey guys!

Yes, I know. Late again! I’m ashamed, but homework comes first. This is going to be from today, but I am keeping Sunday’s date.

APRIL 8TH-14TH

I finished the ARC I was reading and you can find that review here. However, I didn’t finish anything else. As always during the semester, homework came first.

TODAY

I am currently sitting in my normal spot on Tuesday mornings and I’m bored. I know that I should be doing my homework, but I’m not. Someone tell me to do my homework! After class today, I will definitely be working on homework (as there is only 4 weeks left in the semester). I will continue listening to the audiobook for “Clockwork Princess” and hopefully finish it today as I only have 140 pages left. I have a major project due tomorrow that I haven’t even started yet plus Latin homework (like normal).

APRIL 15TH-21ST

I have 2 major projects due this week along with starting on my final project for one of my MCS classes (I have to do a whole project on “I Love Lucy”). This week, I also have to finish signing up for classes as I am waiting for department permission for MCS 333: History and Theory of Media and Communication. This week, I want to finish “Clockwork Princess” and “Everything, Everything”. I also want to try to finish “The Great Gatsby”. I also want to try to start/finish “A House at the Bottom of a Lake” by Josh Malerman, “Post High School Reality Quest” by Meg Eden, “The Romantics” by Leah Konen, and “We Are Okay” by Nina Lacour. I also want to start “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs (I have the audiobook). I know I will not get to all of these, but a girl can dream (right?).

Until my next post,

ARC Review: “Raw” by Simone Sowood

Hey guys!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Overview from GoodReads:

I stand before her naked… raw. The paparazzi are hounding me about a sex scandal and I have to escape. So I run. Not just from them, from my past, my present, from everything. My car breaks down and I end up walking straight into a peach of a bare ass. The f*cking luck of ending up in the middle of a boudoir photo shoot. Elsie’s bent over, ass in the air and ripe for picking, Insisting she’s not the kind of girl who normally does this sort of thing. A thousand things I want to do to her flash through my mind. Being my salvation isn’t one of them but that’s what she is. A green eyed beauty who belongs to me. Mine. Hope for the first time in my life. But she’s hiding something. And it ruins our future.

I loved this book. It was so fun to read! This has got to be one of Simone Sowood’s best books yet!

New Blog Page and the Aquarium

Hey guys!

HERE IS THE NEWS THAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT!

I have a new tab on my home page, so go check that out:

https://stephaniecassidyblog.wordpress.com/book-reviews/

I also went to the Aquarium!

So, my boyfriend and I had a date night at the Aquarium. That night, my car gave out and I had to miss class the next morning to get it fixed (my alternator blew). But we had fun at the Aquarium, so that’s what matters.

Top 5 Wednesday: Auto-Buy Sci-Fi and Fantasy Authors

  1. Richelle Mead – she is always going to be an auto-buy author for me. I loved both the “Vampire Academy” series and the “Bloodlines” series.
  2. Jennifer M. Eaton – my favorite series from her is the “Fire in the Woods” series.
  3. Jennifer L. Armentrout – I know that she is also an author for contemporaries, but she is also one of my favorite fantasy authors. I absolutely loved her “Dark Elements” series.
  4. Jennifer Anne Davis – I am currently reading a couple of her books. She is definitely an auto-buy.
  5. Stephenie Meyer – Loved the “Twilight Saga” and every book she has written (minus “The Chemist” but that’s a whole ‘nother story).
